Located in Riverwalk Park, Broward County’s oldest hotel building, the New River Inn Museum of History, part of the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society campus, dates back to 1905. It is highlighted by a charming all-white exterior and nearby gazebo.

“We have a six-building campus where we can do everything from a full IT package to a historic tea indoors,” said Patricia Zeiler, executive director of the Historical Society. “Outdoors, we’ve had as many as 10,000 people on the full grounds. We once picked up a group of about 80 Greek scholars and gave them a historic boat tour, pointing out the major area architecture sites on the water. They disembarked in front of our main building right on the New River and enjoyed a buffet dinner on the front lawn.”
